#007 – Speech Pathology & Migrants Who Stutter

Speech Pathology

**Warning – This episode suffered some minor audio issues. The quality has dropped but is still worth a listen. We apologise to Clare and to you all for the inconvenience. **

Today we take a look into a field of Allied Health which is commonly misunderstood and not well characterised within the public. Clare Andrews, a recent honours graduate in speech pathology, joins us on the show to talk about the work of a ‘Speechy’ and of her research.
Her research focus is on the experiences of migrants who stutter and the impact migration can have upon their vocal fluency. She tells us some stories about these migrates and how they have adapted to cope with a speech disability in a new environment.

Let us know what you think of the show and get in contact with your feedback.
